Ararat Tips 3/2/2023


Race 6 No. 3  TRUE NOBILITY- ($2.70)

TRUE NOBILITY can go close in Race 6 of the day. The four-year-old was a winner at Hamilton earlier this preparation and has since had a couple of starts at Moonee Valley, finishing 6th when not quite handling the Soft deck before placing a narrow 3rd on February 17 over the 1200m. He looked the winner with 100m to go before just fading late. This looks slightly easier and he should get the run of the race from barrier 2 with Dean Yendall to ride. 



Race 7 No. 7 PLAYING IT SAFE – ($3.30)

PLAYING IT SAFE shapes as a solid player in Race 7 at Ararat. The Lindsey Smith-trained galloper has been thereabouts at her past few runs and was solid in a BenchMark 70 on February 10 over the 2040m at Moonee Valley, placing 4th behind Liberated Girl, beaten less than two lengths. She settled back that evening before producing the fastest last 200m. Step up to the 2200m looks ideal and the daughter of Written Tycoon drops back to BM58.
